Q: Hi! What would you say is the biggest event for printmakers? Also, when and where is it this year/next year? Thank you!
I’m not sure about overseas events. Stateside, SGC International is the biggest annual print conference. It takes place next year March 20-23 in Milwaukee. This is a fun one to check out
The biennial MAPC (Mid America Print Council) Conference is Nov 1-3, 2012 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri
IMPACT 8, the 8th biennial International Multidisciplinary Printmaking Conference, is being hosted at the University of Dundee in Scotland Aug 28-Sept 1
Print Week in NYC is Oct 29-Nov 4, I’m super curious about this one
Codex IV bookfair and symposium, Feb 10- 13 in Berkeley, California
CBAA College Book Art Association will host a 2013 conference, not sure on details yet
Watermarks 2012 conference will host lectures and workshops on hand papermaking. Oct 17-20 2012 in Cleveland, Ohio.
I’m sure there are other awesome conferences (if anyone would like to share a few:) If you are in the Philippines maybe get in contact with Hardin ng Kalikasan. I recently met an MFA grad who was able to work at a papermaking mill in Quezon Province through them.
Happy printing and safe travels!
